Here is where the magic happens: the REC board turns bedroom guitarists into real pros. Remember - it doesn't matter if you fail or pass, as long as you keep posting REC takes you will progress.

The entries will be graded by a number of instructors. After grading, members will be accredited with the appropriate points if they pass, and adjustments will be made to their REC level.
Passing grade is 6 or higher.

Very good effort my friend !

There were a few pauses that felt as if you were adjusting to play the next phrase but overall the flow was good.

The guitar sounded a bit out of tune at the end as well.. so that's the only thing that stops it being a total 10. Nice work ! smile.gif

Hi mate. This is a very good take. Well done! There is still room to make it sounds smoother but this will happen with some more days of practice. There is nothing else to improve, just keep on playing it. Congrats! wink.gif

Good job mate! I think this tune needs a bit more time. I can still feel like You hesitate when changing chords. In this kind of playing there is no headroom (like in single melody solos) for hesitation. Try to think a bit earlier about the chords that will happen in a moment. Playing classical is a hard thing - needs much more control. You always have to be 100% sure what's gonna happen next. In this take we have some moments of not precise finger pressure. I think You know exactly what I mean smile.gif Personally I can only tell there is not much to complain and You know the form. I little more practice will remove the "hesitation facot" and some of those notes will come more precise smile.gif Well done smile.gif
